Sandwich

Visit Sandwich

Sandwich is described as "one of the most well-preserved medieval towns in Britain". Build in 1579, the Guildhall dominates the Market Square.

You can see Sandwich town's own original Magna Carta (issued by Edward 1 in 1300) and an original Charter of the Forest (issued in 1271), both on display at Sandwich Guildhall Museum.

Wander down the newly refurbished quay to Fisher Gate - dating from 1384 and one of the two surviving original medieval town gates.

Food has always been associated with the town - in the 18th century the Earl of Sandwich is reputed to have devised the popular snack, and this is celebrated in the annual food festival.

With many local events, championship golf courses, walking routes and attractions, there's always plenty to see and do!

Stay in Sandwich and take a step back in time!
